Robert Lee Noye, a black Iowa man, was arrested Monday after police say he kidnapped a white woman, held her against her will, and forced her to watch the nine-hour slavery miniseries "Roots" so she would "better understand her racism."

Noye, 52, forced the woman to "remain seated" with him at a Cedar Rapids residence while she watched the series. When she tried to move, Noye reportedly told her "he would kill her and spread her body parts across Interstate 380 on the way to Chicago" if she did not sit still.

Noye faces charges of first-degree harassment and false imprisonment.
